Twenty-First Book Review for the Canadian Book Review Challenge

Maggie’s Chopsticks
By: Alan Woo
Illustrated by: Isabelle Malenfant

This is a wonderful picture book by a Canadian author who writes about a very important topic for kids: how to not be hypercritical of yourself and accept yourself as you uniquely are.

This book is about how to use chopsticks. Maggie tries to emulate how other people use chopsticks. But she can’t do what they do. Her grandmother insists that each person holds chopsticks in a different way. And that’s okay. We can, and should, have our own unique way of holding chopsticks.

Maggie’s story is a wonderful book about self-discovery with a powerful message. It will be one that most kids will be able to relate to right away.

My niece loved the book from beginning to end. The illustrator, Isabelle Malenfant, also did a splendid job illustrating the book.

5 Stars
